I don't understand much about creating pages but for some reason this one doesn't view correctly in Firefox. - GrilledCheese17 01:03, 31 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- Yep, the same model was re-used here. For an analysis, take a look at this page. --Jörg 06:46, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
Holodeck Comedian Roster
Looking quickly at the roster of comedians Data brings up when entering the holodeck, I believe I saw Bill Cosby listed. Also it appears that his final selection, Mr. Comic, is actually listed on the holodeck screen as Ronald D. Moore. --Jason3fc 14:55, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
- It was actually Ronald B. Moore after the visual effects supervisor (who helped make the graphic); see Talk:Ronald B. Moore (comedian).– Cleanse 04:44, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
Thadiun Okona vs. Harcourt Mudd
- More like Han Solo meets the Enterprise (roguish lady's man, empty cargo hold, has similar malfunction to the Millenium Falcon, equipped with laser weapons, clothing that reflects aspects of Han Solo [vest, white shirt, belt worn John Wayne/Han Solo style], poor attempts at giving him similar quips as Han [but really poorly done]). 18.104.22.168 01:41, July 23, 2015 (UTC)
I removed the following notes, which have lacked citation for awhile. If a citation can be found, they can be returned:
- The intent of this episode was for the secret love affair revealed at the end to be an allegory for Romeo and Juliet. It is unclear who Okona was supposed to be in that interpretation, although Friar Lawrence would be a likely candidate. In the play, Friar Lawrence was the one who orchestrated a plan between the titular lovers that would enable them to be together, much like Okona did for his couple.
- Similarly, the "You're a droid and I'm a 'noid" exchange was improvised by Whoopi Goldberg and Brent Spiner, since neither they nor the director could understand the original joke that was written for the sequence.
- While Data cannot tell a joke, he appears capable of making up a joke ("Take my Worf, please!").
- The signage on the turbolift is wrong the two times we see it. The deck shown is Deck 11, yet Okona visits rooms which are on decks 7 and 8.
